Pure Top

Here’s the quilt top I finally finished up this Sunday. It’s been in the works for a very long time. In fact, I think it’s the third quilt I started, but it’s been sitting in blocks until now.

I love it. It was (in theory) a really quick top to whip up. As long as you don’t count the months and months it sat in between steps. I used two layer cakes of Pure, by Sweetwater, and created really big disappearing nine patch blocks.

Now I just have to make sure it doesn’t take me another 10 months to quilt it. I’m not really sure how I want to do it. Obviously straight lines would be easiest, since I can use David Bowie for that, but I kind of think I’d like to do something different. Maybe it’s time to call my aunt who has not one, but two quilting machines in her home. Who knew? I’d love to learn how to use them and explore the creative options that gives me since fitting this size quilt into my home machine is really not an option.

Oh, and the back is almost pieced. I had enough squares left (the ones that I cut to the wrong size and was going to have to adjust anyway) to do one strip across the back, with a cream solid on top and bottom. Now, any quilting ideas for me?
